Wolf ‘s GB08 will be made available for customers in the Asian Le Mans Series, with support coming from a newly established partnership, it was revealed Wednesday.
Wolf Racing Cars has announced that it has entered an agreement with Atlantic Racing, which will field two of the FIA CN2-spec cars in the series this year, along with providing trackside technical support for other teams.
Formed in 1989 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the Canadian operation has competed in various open-wheel and sports car championships with a variety of manufacturers.
Atlantic will operate under the new name of “ATL Wolf Asia” and will also be tasked with creating a sales network for the Italian manufacturer’s newly expanded prototype offerings.
“We welcome Ingo Strackerjan in our sales organization to address an important and demanding market such as Asia,” said Wolf Racing Cars general manager Giovanni Bellarosa. “Entering the Asian Le Mans Series was essential for us in waiting for the new models, Wolf LMP2 and LMP3 that we will present in the coming months.”
Atlantic Racing team manager Strackerjan added: “Our immediate goal is to provide to prospective clients a car to test, therefore getting customers into the cars and showing the reliability of the products while racing.
“Whether it’s under Atlantic Racing Team or while helping our customers, we will strive for the top step of the podium. We will provide a full spectrum of dedicated services to meet and exceed our customer’s expectation.”
FIA CN2-spec cars will be allowed to compete in the championship this year, as a precursor to the LMP3 platform that’s set to launch in 2015.
Wolf has expressed plans to build prototypes for both LMP2 and LMP3, with further announcements expected in the coming months.
